What Our Clients Say
“The Early Years Evaluation – Direct Assessment helps us connect with potentially at-risk families who until now have refused all the services that were offered to them. By sharing the child’s results right after the evaluation, we’re able to deal with touchy subjects with the parents.”
Marie Boudreau,Coordonnatrice de la transition scolaire, Agence Famille Petite Enfance Nord-Ouest
“I can't tell you how proud and happy I feel to see the translations into many indigenous languages! I believe The Learning Bar is a trail blazer and advocate for First Nations, and this is evidence of your commitment to advancing learning for our children.”
Lori Whiteman,Executive Director, Treaty 4 Education Alliance
“Administering the EYE-DA was a great experience for our teachers – that is ongoing! This has helped them adequately target the developmental fields that they will be working on with each child during their last year at the childcare centre. Furthermore, sharing the child report with parents leads to better communication with them.”
